2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, 32 HP, four-speed gearbox, drum brakes; wheelbase: 74

Ford produced the "Golden Jubilee" to celebrate its 50th anniversary. This tractor was only released in 1953 and 1954, succeeding the Ford 8N, and just 128,965 models were built. Made in the Highland Park, Michigan factory, this tractor had a special badge on its nose that commemorated the anniversary. Upon release, it cost $1,560.

This tractor comes out of a noted collection and features a liquid cooled four-cylinder engine with eight valves and weighs in at 2,800 pounds. Slightly longer and heavier than the 8N, it produces 32 HP. This lovely example has just 1,300 original hours of operation and sports a very correct repaint with no damage or signs of wear. Our consignor reports that it runs and drives like new and, while he used it for farm shows and tractor events, it would be fully capable of hitching your double-bottom plow to the three-point hitch and plowing any field you choose.
